House impeachment managers on Wednesday began laying out their case against President Trump, outlining why senators should move to convict and remove him from office.

The managers, led by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), presented videos of testimony they gathered during the House impeachment inquiry, as well as clips showing Trump telling ABC News' George Stephanopoulos he would accept foreign dirt on political opponents and Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney admitting a quid pro quo with Ukraine. The White House refused to turn over documents and blocked some witnesses from testifying during the inquiry, and Schiff said senators will still learn the "full truth."
